As many as you want until the ball is in the hole as long as you don't hold up the play of the golf course. No matter how bad you hit the ball always watch where it goes and you will not have a problem keeping up with the group in front of you. If you are playing Stableford, you can pick up when 2 over net par because your score is already down to zero. With a handicap of 24 this will be 4 over the real par for most holes. (3 over par for some, depending on Scratch Index) For handicap purposes, the same applies, so you might as well pick up after 4 over par. If it's a medal competition, keep going. Every stroke counts.

A shot a hole on holes 1-18 on the stroke index or handicap holes, and then a further shot on 1-5 on the stroke index or handicap holes.

User Avatar

On the stroke holes 1-10, you will be given two extra shots. On the stroke holes 11-18, you will be given one extra shot. This adds up to 28 extra shots, which is your handicap. Please note that stroke hole 1 does not mean the first hole. Stroke hole 1 means the hardest hole on the course, and it should say on your scorecard what the stroke for each hole is. If you want your net score, take your gross score and subtract 28.

As many as it takes to get the ball in the hole. Shots over par will reduce your score though.

no sweatpar is the score or number of strokes it should take the average player to complete each hole. for ex. if a hole is par 3 and you take 3 shots to get it in the hole then you have finished that hole par. but if you take 4 shots you are one over par or if you take 2 shots you are one under par. par is NOT what the average player can do. Par is how many strokes a very skilled golfer should take for each hole.

The players tee off the first hole in order of lowest to highest handicap. From the second hole, the player with the lowest score on the previous hole has the honour and it continues like so.

You get a shot on the holes as determined by the stroke index or handicap as set on the score card. So if your handicap is 9, you get one shot on each of the holes ranked 1-9 on the stroke index or handicap index. Using your handicap, you get a shot on the hardest holes 1 being the hardest and 18 being the easiest.

Each putt counts as one stroke to your score for that hole, so it's not necessarily only the putts that count, your shots before them do also.

User Avatar

Simply you get two shots per hole, so a double bogey effectively becomes your par. Whatever your gross score is, you take away 36 and that is your nett score.

A. The maximum Handicap Index is 36.4 for men and 40.4 for women (18.2N and 20.2N for a nine-hole Handicap Index, respectively).

They give up strokes on the easiest holes, that is, the hole ranked the highest i.e 18, then 17, then 16 on the handicap or stroke index.

For a round of golf, the net score for a player is their gross score minus their handicap. The net score for one hole is the gross for the hole, minus the strokes allowed for the hole. The stroke index for the hole and the players handicap is used to determine how many strokes you get, and on which holes.

36 points is level your handicap. So you can simply add your handicap to par for the course, then if you have more than 36 points, take the amount you are over 36 points by and take this away from the total of par for the course plus your handicap. And if you have less than 36 points you add how many short you are to the total of par for the course and your handicap. However this will not work if you have had a hole where you were more than 2 shots over your allowance.

If a hole is par 5 for instance, that means it should take 5 shots to putt the ball. a birdie is 1 under parr "4 shots on a parr 5 hole" an eagle is 2 under parr "3 shots on a parr 5 hole" and an albertross is 3 under parr "2 shots on a parr five hole"

It depends on where you live, but in the US. The USGA set the maximum Handicap Index at 36.4 for men and 40.4 for women (18.2N and 20.2N for a nine-hole Handicap Index, respectively).

Golf This is a Bristish term in golf for completing a hole three shots under par. Otherwise known as a 'double eagle'. e.g. Getting the ball in the hole in the hole in 2 shots on a par 5 hole. Acheiving this is VERY rare. 'Par' is the number of shots you would be expected to have to take to complete a hole in a game of golf.

Guidelines on Handicap CalculationCompetition Format: The famous Japanese "Double Perrier" system to determine the winner.1. Select 12 holes for calculation of handicap. This may be done by a lottery after the play.2. Handicap (HD) is 36 or less and determined by the following equations:HD is the summation of the each selected 12 hole's handicap (HDeach) multiplied by the ratio of total sum of par of the course against the total par of the selected 12 holes and further multiplied by 0.9 (handicap ratio) or 36 whichever the small.i.e.,HD=MIN(0.9*(sum of HDeach *(sum of par of the course/sum of par of the selected 12 holes), 36)2.1 HDeachhandicap of each selected hole (HDeach) is Zero or (HDeach-calc) whichever the larger.i.e., HDeach=MAX ( HDeach-calc, 0 )This means HDeach is always 0 or more. If you hit eagle or birdie at the hole, you will get a advantage (never make handicap minus)2.2 HDeach-calcHDeach-calc is the par number of the hole or (the score of the hole minus the par number of the hole) whichever the smaller.HDeach-calc=MIN( par of the hole, (score -par of the hole) )This means HDeach-calc is always equal to or less than the par number of the hole. If you hit more than double of the par number at a hole, the part of your score more than double of the par number of the hole is not taken into account the handicap and disadvantage of you. Do not hit too much.3. Advantages of winnersFor honor of the winners, in addition to the calculation as described in paragraph 2 above;The handicap of the winner of the last session is HD-3, andThe handicap of the winners of the past sessions is HD-2.

There is no maximum, you keep going till you pick up or hole out.

A eagle in golf is when you score 2 under par on a hole. For example on a par 5 you make it in the hole in 3 shots or par 4 in 2 shots

System 36 is a method of creating handicaps on the same day of an 18-hole tournament. Most frequently used in friendly tournaments where many of the players don't have official handicaps. The method used is as follows. At the end of play, a tally is made of each players round, counting up the number of holes scoring par or better, the number scoring a bogey and the number scoring double bogey or more. Then each par or better receives 2 points, each bogey receives 1 point and each double bogey or worse receives 0 points. The points are added up and subtracted from 36. This is the handicap for the player. For example, if you par every hole, you will receive a point total of 2 x 18 = 36. Subtracting from 36 gives you a handicap of 0. Another example. A golfer completed the following round:Hole 1 - parHole 2 - bogeyHole 3 - birdieHole 4 - triple bogeyHole 5 - bogeyHole 6 - bogeyHole 7 - double bogeyHole 8 - bogeyHole 9 - parHole 10 - double bogeyHole 11 - double bogeyHole 12 - parHole 13 - bogeyHole 14 - double bogeyHole 15 - triple bogeyHole 16 - parHole 17 - bogeyHole 18 - par Total at end of round:par or better = 6 x 2 = 12bogeys = 6 x 1 = 6double bogeys or worse = 6 x 0 = 0 Total points = 18 Handicap = 36 - 18 = 18 Gross = 91Net = 73

A person that shoots 1 over on each hole. For instance, if the hole is a par 4, a bogey golfer would get a 5 on it, and for the total round would shoot a score of exactly 90. In rating the difficulty of courses through course rating and slope rating, the USGA defines a bogey golfer thusly: "A player with a USGA Handicap Index of 17.5 to 22.4 strokes for men and 21.5 to 26.4 for women. Under normal situations the male bogey golfer can hit his tee shot 200 yards and can reach a 370-yard hole in two shots. Likewise, the female bogey golfer can hit her tee shot 150 yards and can reach a 280-yard hole in two shots. Players who have a Handicap Index between the parameters above but are unusually long or short off the tee are not considered to be a bogey golfer for course rating purposes."

Scorecards are divided into two sets of 9. One for the first 9 holes and the other for holes 10 through 18. Little pencils are used to log in how many shots were taken for each hole. After you tee off, keep track of all of your shots and then write down each hole's total shots before starting the next hole. Compare your number of shots to the par of the hole to see how you did. If the first hole is a par 4, and you finished in 5 shots, then you made a bogey, and you are +1 for the round, meaning you are one over par. Remember, the number of shots to make par depends on whether the hole is a par 3, 4 or 5. After the 9th hole, you'll notice a place on the scorecard to record your score on the front 9. Add up your score and compare it to what par is for the front 9. This is also when the erasers come out. Say that par for the front 9 is 36, and you shot a 45. This means your score is 45-36 = +9, or 9 shots over par (for the front 9). Repeat the same process for the back 9, and then add the two scores together to get the total score for the round. Eagle=-2 Birdie=-1 Par=0 Bogey=+1 Double bogey=+2

It depends how many strokes you take ! Each hole is assigned a 'Par' - that is the number of strokes you are expected to take from the tee to sinking the ball in the hole. If you sink the ball with the same number of strokes as the Par, you score zero. If you sink the ball with less strokes, you score a negative value, and if you take more shots than Par, you score a positive.For example - if a hole is a 'Par 5' - that means you're likely to take five shots from the tee, to sinking the ball in the hole. If you take four shots, you score minus 1 (-1) - commonly called a birdie. If you take six shots, you score plus 1 (+1) - a bogey.The winner is the player with the lowest score at the end of the 18-hole game.

"Ambrose Golf" is another name for a scramble, but one in which a team handicap is used. The Ambrose format is very popular as it allows all levels of golfers to mix and play together. It requires teamwork and minimizes the amount of time looking for lost balls, thus speeding up play. One score is thus recorded on each hole. This is the sum of the best shots used throughout the hole. Groups of between two to four players work as a team. Composition of each team is an important factor. The composite skill levels of each team should be as close to equal as possible. For example, there should not be a team of golfers who all can score in the low 80s and another team where all the players score in the 100s. The 80s team will beat the 100s team consistently even with a handicap adjustment. For a team of 2 golfers, the combined handicap of both players is divided by 4 to arrive at the team handicap. For 3 golfers, divide by 6 and for 4 golfers divide by 8. When the team's round score is totaled, subtract the team handicap to arrive at the net score. Each player hits off the tee and then the team selects the optimal shot to use as the team shot. Optimal does not necessarily mean the ball closest to the hole, since during the course of the complete round, each player's tee shots must be used a minimum number of times (usually 3 or 4). All other players pick up their ball and, in sequence, hits a second shot from within 1 club length of the "optimal ball", but no closer to the hole and not outside any hazard that the "optimal ball" landed in. The optimal shot is again selected and all golfers hit their next shot from there. This continues until the ball is in the hole. On the putting green the optimal ball location is marked and the other balls are played from this position.
